Actors Katrina Kaif and Sidharth Malhotra were offloaded by Air India officials from their scheduled flight to Mumbai after they delayed their boarding and allegedly indulged in promoting their upcoming movie at Indira Gandhi International Airport’s terminal area with fans.

Officials said the incident was reported late last night after both the actors reached the airport and got their boarding passes to fly to Mumbai in the Air India flight number AI-317.

Post the security check, the duo were seen mingling with fans in the duty-free area of the airport to promote their upcoming film “Baar Baar Dekho”, the officials said.

They said both the actors were asked by airport officials to board the flight scheduled for 9:40 PM but they kept delaying the flight.

Finally, sources said, the airline decided to offload them at about 10:45 PM as other passengers complained about the delay in departure.

However, Air India officials said the Bollywood actors were not deplaned, as they were issued boarding passes but “they chose not to travel as part of their own decision”
